I have had the most excellent three weeks! Classes galore and lots of designing of classes and card stock flying everywhere. But now the classes are over for this year and I am in the craft room putting the finishing touches on my cards.
I have so many to send out and while I am really great at making them I am not so great on finishing the insides. I would much rather have the fun making them I guess. But Christmas is not going to wait for me so I must resign myself to a schedule. lol
I have several finished projects to share with you and over the next week or two will do so. I hope you enjoy the cards and the tags and I have one special card that I made for Emily to share with you but I have to wait until my DD sees it as I don't want to spoil the surprise. I have to tell you it is probably the cutest card I have ever made and it kills me to have to wait to show you all.
But alas I must!
So here are today's shares -
This was a card I submitted to SU for a little contest. I didn't win but I did have so much fun creating this beauty! I used Island Indigo for my accent color. I love this color so much. I am drawn to blues and this one is really rich and lush.
I used a direct to paper technique. The colors I used were Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, and Island Indigo for the sky. The sand was Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and Early Espresso. I stamped the bird images with Memento Black and the Grass.
I used the three blue colors on the Feathers. I added a little versamark ink around the edges of the feathers and then picked up some silver embossing powder just on the edges. I added them to the card using dimensionals. I wanted the feathers to appear as if they were floating to the ground. I love the colors and it was an easy card to do.
This card was done in my "Special Cards for Special People" I used the star framelits to cut out a star in the front layer. I ran the card stock through the Northern Flurry embossing folder to give it some texture. Added the Santa from "Get your Santa On" set and a greeting held with some washi tape. Fun little card to do.
Well that's it for today folks. Back as soon as I get another 10 minutes to myself. lol
